While walking toward Angel rock, Ayako and I observed many locals with feet and hands in the water looking for something. I wanted Ayako to ask them what it was but she thought I had to do some effort if I wanted to know! So I asked the one guy : “kore wa nani desu ka? (What is this thing?). And he told me it was Asari, a small type of shellfish. Later that evening, we went to the local Isakaya to taste the delicious Asari no Sakamushi (Asari steamed in sake)!
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
